Abstract: The Anatomical Atlas of Flies can be used as a resource to accompany any fly key or as an aid for teaching fly (Diptera) anatomy. The atlas works both ways: users can either click on a part to discover its name, or click on a name to discover the location and shape of a part. The atlas relies on high resolution digital images of flies, and allows the user to change magnifications to see fine details. The Atlas uses examples from the 4 major fly groups (Nematocera, Orthorrhapha, Acalyptratae, Calyptratae), representing different anatomical expressions of flyness. The user can highlight a particular structure and navigate between flies. In this way the user can recognize how homologous structures change shape and form across this vast taxonomic spectrum.
